to play practical jokes, but only nice ones. Hare enjoys having
fun, but he’s also not afraid of hard work. Hare’s

creek water. He lives in a giant cottonwood tree, but spends quite
a bit of his time in Bear’s Lair.

Raven is extremely intelligent. While it is rumored that owls
are the “wise” birds, Raven is actually the wisest
creature in the woods. He is a “watcher” and he can
find anything that may be lost because he has
extremely good eyesight and a sharp mind. He is an excellent friend
to have because he is exceptionally loyal. Raven enjoys collecting
shiny treasures, and is rumored to have a vast treasure buried
somewhere near Bear’s
lair—but only Raven knows the exact spot (though Gopher has
his suspicions). Raven will fly five miles if
there are pine nuts to be found, which happens to be his favorite
Owl is Bear’s newest friend. He is timid, and hard
to get to know at first, but a very caring friend and worth the
effort. He prefers to stay hidden away during the day, and come
out toward the evening hours. His eyes are a tad sensitive to sunlight,
but he will come out to play on some days if his friends ask nicely.
Owl loves the dark coziness of Bear’s lair, and he spends
many evenings there preening his feathers in front of the fire,
listening to music, and sipping tea.
